Introduction of School of International and Public Affairs
People around world are getting closer in time and space with much intensified interactions along with the ongoing development of economic globalization and information society. Public diplomacy and cultural exchanges are playing an increasingly significant role in promoting understandings between ethnic groups, cultures, religions and nations, and help improve the international image of a country. The world is entering the Era of Public Diplomacy. On one hand, as a necessary supplement to governmental diplomacy, public diplomacy has been drawing significant attention by countries worldwide and become an integrated part of the overall diplomacy of certain countries; on the other hand, the governments are also actively engaging non-governmental diplomacy to promote the understanding of other people to know the home country.
The Era of Public Diplomacy calls for new type of talents who are versed in communication and dialogue, and have good knowledge of the world economy, politics and cultural plurality. As an answer to this calling and to promote public diplomacy and cultural exchanges, Jilin University has set up the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) which is the first school oriented in public diplomacy studies among Chinese universities. In 2014 SIPA participated as a founding member in the establishment of “Collaborative Innovation Center of the Theory and Practices of China’s Diplomacy” initiated by China Foreign Affairs University.
